This 30m high quality, natural, nylon-free dental floss is coated with candelilla wax and flavoured with mint. The core is made from peace silk (Ahimsa silk) – that means the silk is harvested in a non-violent, vegan-friendly way from empty spun cocoons. Wild silk moths complete their cycle from silkworm to moth flying away without harm and the silk is spun from the empty cocoons. Standard silk production involves moths dying for silk cocoons, this does not happen with peace silk.
Being all-natural, it is free from harmful chemicals that are commonly found in commercial dental floss, like perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl. It is also entirely biodegradable after use, and is free from environmentally problematic substances like nylon that take up to 90 years to decompose, posing a danger to wildlife and waterways.
This peace silk floss is designed to be gentle on teeth and gums, yet effective at reducing risk of cavities, improving dental health, helping to prevent gum disease, reducing bad breath, and helping to remove plaque and harmful bacteria.
It comes in a reusable glass container, and there is an economical refill option with biodegradable packaging. No compromises – best for your shinies, and best for the planet!
